Feet, don't fail me now,
Take me to the finish line.
Oh my heart, it breaks
Every step I take,
But I'm hoping that the gates,
They'll tell me that you're mine.

Walking through the city streets;
Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on a Friday night.
Can you make me feel like home,
If I tell you you're mine?
It's like I told you honey:

Don't make me sad,
Don't make me cry.
Sometimes love is not enough
The road gets tough,
I don't know why.
Keep making me laugh,
Let's go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Take a walk on the wild side,
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain,
You like your boys insane.
Choose your last words,
This is the last time,
'Cause you and I,
We were born to die.

Lost but now I am found.
I can see, once I was blind.
I was so confused as a little child,
Trying to take what I could find,
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers, honey.

Don't make me sad,
Don't make me cry,
Sometimes love is not enough,
The road gets tough,
I don't know why.
Keep making me laugh,
Let's go get high.
The road is long, we carry on,
Try to have fun in the meantime.

Take a walk on the wild side,
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain,
Like your boys insane.
Choose your last words,
This is the last time,
'Cause you and I,
We were born to die.

Born to die...
Take a walk on the wild side...
We were born,
Born to die.

Kiss me hard in the pouring rain,
Cause you and I
Were born to die.

Let's go get high,
Kiss me hard in the pouring rain,
Like your boys insane
Cause you and I,
Were born to die

Born...

Born...

Cause you and I
were born to...
Die...

    General CommentFunny,

    I just read so many thoughts and meanings, passing by God to real love ... And so much more..

    U see it?
    We can understand the music but it's according to our mood and our way to see things, that we can take the meaning we want.

    When I first ear it, i do believe it's like a crush, a desire she just succumbed to.

    "Feet dont fail me now.." - Please, give me the corage to continue, since i've come this way so far..

    the chorus is obvious: the knowledge that they cant be together so "Try to have fun in the meantime".

    I do, I do believe it's a song that i can relate with an affair. She already told she like's her man older... =) So, why not a kinda cheatting song?
    Maybe it's my mood, my dark way to see things, but i do believe i can relate her song to something i'm feeling.. I know it's wrong, but we were meant to be, i used to mix all things up "I can see, but once I was blind/ I was so confused as a little child" But now, i can see things like they are. Until it makes us happies we dont need to do nothing.. 'cause we're born to die!

    Sorry for my mistakes, I'm portuguese*

    My InterpretationThis song to me talks about Lana's love of New York and her fascination that we are all going die one day. she even said this about both:

    1. "A lot of the time when I write about the person that I love, I feel like I'm writing about New York"

    2. "When I was very young I was sort of floored by the fact that my mother and my father and everyone I knew was going to die one day, and myself too. I had a sort of a philosophical crisis. I couldn't believe that we were mortal."

    Again this is what I think. In the chorus she describes living life, getting high, and kissing in the rain. And she also describes her love for someone and not wanting it to end. She doesn't want life and love to end but than she says we are born to die, that we are all going to die and it will end eventually. I think the meaning is not only beautiful but very sad and haunting. You can hear it in her voice, I love this song.
